On Friday night, Tidy Teddy was invited to go with Ms. England’s friends Kristin and Arthur to a Christmas Party at the White House! Though Tidy Teddy wasn’t officially on the guest list, Kristin stuck him past the security guards in her purse.
When Teddy got inside, he was greeted by sculptures of the first dogs, Sunny and Bo! They were really furry and friendly.
Then Teddy went and saw a portrait of our first president, George Washington. Can you spot him in the background?
After Teddy said hello to President Washington, he went upstairs and heard the President and the First Lady give a speech welcoming all of the guests. Teddy was all the way at the back of the room, but Arthur is very tall and held him up in the air so he can see. If you look very hard, can you spot the First Lady?
Once the President and First Lady finished speaking, Teddy was finally able to walk around and enjoy the party! He loved looking at the decorations, including a wreath made out of rainbow-colored gumballs.
He really liked the Christmas trees which had miniature houses made out of Legos for each of the 50 states (and U.S. territories). Teddy took a picture of the house from Ms. England’s home state of Illinois, and a Lego version of the White House for Washington, D.C., and even your state of California!
He also took a picture in front of the big gingerbread house in the shape of the White House and a portrait of another one of his favorite presidents, Abraham Lincoln!
Tidy Teddy had so much fun at the party!
